    North Dakota tribe accused of concealing data on pipeline spill

    The environmental director for the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation in North Dakota is accusing his tribe of concealing information about a pipeline spill on the reservation.
    A pipeline with saltwater, a byproduct of oil and gas development, ruptured and spilled about 1 million gallons in early July. But Edmund Baker said tribal officials refuse to disclose whether any of the brine made it into Lake Sakakawea, a source of drinking water for the tribe.
